Why It’s Useful: One way to review or acquire new patterns is one Contextualized Grammar Point at a time. Within the overall context of “Science & Technology,” this ten-part chapter covers ten sub-areas of “the Future” (be going to vs. will; the future continuous vs. the simple future; present forms with future meaning; future possibility with if; time clauses; be about to; the future in the past; the future perfect tense; the future perfect vs. the future perfect continuous; the future perfect vs. the simple future. Though concise, the chapter just about covers the general grammar topic.
What You’ll Do:
 On page 82, look over the Chapter 5 Opener photo, title, and subtitle. For each Lesson 41-50, distinguish between the grammar points it presents/practices and the content or subject matter it addresses. Speculate on how they might be integrated.
 On page 83, notice the sections of Lesson 41: Be Going to vs. Will. These divisions are a boxed presentation/explanation that includes comparison + examples of adverbial time expressions; a directed (controlled) Exercise A; and a drawing to describe with vocabulary cues in Exercise B. Then come starred (*) “beyond the text” Exercises *C and *D, which—though outdated, will give text users a chance to talk about their smart-phones and other uses of devices.
 On pages 84-94, follow comparable or more appropriate steps for Lessons 42-50. Use the chapter as a reference for formation and usage of future-time-frame sentences in real life.
